I assume the award was for his ground-breaking idea to start The Blaze, so he could spew his racist and homophobic opinions without worrying about sponsors. As his citation says:

" Beck’s quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality have made The Glenn Beck Program the third highest rated radio program in America and his unique blend of modern-day storytelling and insightful views on current events allowed him to achieve the extraordinary feat of having #1 New York Times bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction. Beck also stars in a live stage show and is the editor of GlennBeck.com."

"Across all of these mediums, Beck connects with his fans in a whole new way, inspiring and entertaining them with his humor, hard-hitting interviews and honest tales about his life."

Perhaps these people never listened to his program.

This award is sponsored by Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award , an organization based on studies by Clayton Christensen of Harvard University School of Business . The ceremony was hosted by the NYU Tisch School of Business.
